Bacterial Infections can result in swelling, pain, heat, redness, and loss of function

Bacterial infections are caused by the presence and growth of microorganisms that damage host tissue. The extent of infection is generally determined by how many organisms are present and the toxins they release. Worldwide, bacterial infections are responsible for more deaths than any other cause. Symptoms can include inflammation and swelling, pain, heat, redness, and loss of function. The most important risk factors are burns, severe trauma, low white blood cell counts, very old or young patients, patients on immunotherapy treatment, and anyone with malnutrition or vitamin deficiency. Bacteria are generally spread from an already infected person to the newly infected person. The most common invasion routes are inhalation of airborne bacteria, ingestion into the stomach from dirty hands or utensils, or through contaminated food or water, direct contact with an infected area of another person's body, contaminated blood, and by insect bites.

Bacteria consist of only a single cell, but don't let their small size and seeming simplicity fool you. They're an amazingly complex and fascinating group of creatures. Bacteria have been found that can live in temperatures above the boiling point and in cold that would freeze your blood. They "eat" everything from sugar and starch to sunlight, sulfur and iron.

There are thousands of species of bacteria, but all of them are basically one of three different shapes. Some are rod- or stick-shaped and called bacilli (buh-sill-eye).

Others are shaped like little balls and called cocci (cox-eye).Others still are helical or spiral in shape.

Some bacterial cells exist as individuals while others cluster together to form pairs, chains, squares or other groupings.

A type of bacteria that tends to attack persons who are already ill or hospitalized is called Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a rod-shaped organism that can be found in soil, water, plants, and animals. Because it rarely causes disease in healthy persons, but infects those who are already sick or who have weakened immune systems, it is called an opportunistic pathogen. Opportunistic pathogens are organisms that do not ordinarily cause disease, but multiply freely in persons whose immune systems are weakened by illness or medication. Such persons are said to be immunocompromised. Pseudomonas aeruginosa, the versatile "blue-green pus bacteria" opportunistically infects people, especially those who are immunocompromised. Pseudomonas rarely causes infection in healthy individuals but it is a major cause of hospital acquired (nosocomial) infections. It tends to infect people with immunodeficiency or burns and those with indwelling catheters or on respirators. Infection with pseudomonas can lead to urinary tract infections, sepsis (blood stream infection), pneumonia, pharyngitis, and many other medical problems. Pseudomonas colonizes the lungs of patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and contributes to the chronic progressive pulmonary disease and death rate in CF.

Several factors make it a strong opponent. These factors include:

  • the ability to stick to cells
  • minimal food requirements
  • resistance to many antibiotics
  • production of proteins that damage tissue
  • a protective outer coat

How Does the Immune System fight Bacterial Infections? The immune system is a body wide network of cells and organs that has evolved to defend the body against attacks by foreign entities such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses.

About Mesosilver All Natural Colloidal Silver

Supplement your immune system with Mesosilver, an all natural dietary supplement. Mesosilver is made up of a high concentration of pure colloidal silver particles suspended in sterilized water. The particles are of the smallest size, .65 nanometers, and it's this high quality and small size combined with being highly concentrated that makes it the most effective colloidal silver product on the market. Further, Mesosilver has no drug interactions, meaning it will not interfere with any medications you may currently be taking. It also has no side effects reported from its many users. (Of course, do not take Mesosilver if you are allergic to silver). Mesosilver works to support a healthy immune system function. Drug claims cannot be made for Mesosilver. It is difficult and expensive to conduct the double-blind drug type experiments for dietary supplements that would be required to support any drug claims. However, testimonial reports from customers suggest that Mesosilver is an effective supplement to aide in maintaining good health. Laboratory tests indicate that Mesosilver is effective in stopping the growth of bacteria. Read bacteriology challenge reports here.

Method of Use: To help maintain a healthy immune system take Mesosilver orally. Note: Dosages which people recommend for colloidal silver vary since often a small dose is effective while large doses are not harmful. With our product, very small doses are effective since concentration of particles is very high and particle size is very low. The recommended dosage is one tablespoon 4 times a day. At a dosage of 4 tablespoons per day 1 bottle will last 4 days, 4 bottles will last 17 days and, 10 bottles will last 6 weeks.

Results / Testimonials

“My wife had a really bad infection. The doctors thought it was a staph infection at first. They lanced it, but that didn't clear it up, so they put her on vancomyacin, which is like the strongest antibiotic there is. They put her in the hospital for four days on an IV drip, but she still didn't improve. Then they sent her home with the drip for seven days, twice a day and there was still no improvement. After she got off the at home treatments, there was still no obvious healing.

My father-in-law is big into homeopathic medicine and mentioned colloidal silver. So I did some research, got on your web site, and bought four bottles of Mesosilver. I put my wife on the Mesosilver, and within two or three days, healing started taking place. The wound started to close, the redness lessened, and the swelling started going down. My wife kept taking the silver, about two tablespoons a day I think, and after two to three weeks, the wound was totally closed and healed. And it still is to this day.

We came to find out that the infection wasn't staph, but turned out to be an infection called pseudomonas, which is something you usually catch in the woods. My wife never ventures anywhere near the wood, but maybe the pseudomonas developed off the staph infection.” - Brad J. - New Orleans, LA


"I have been using colloidal silver for 2 years now. It's great!! I have gotten about 80 people to use it too. I haven't been sick or had a cold since I began taking it daily (2 yrs). I take about one tablespoon every morning. When I feel a sore throat starting I put drops up my nose. My family and friends have "cured" so many things it is impossible to list them all. Here is a partial list: cold, flu, sunburn, skin rash, athletes foot, eye infection (conjunctivitis), ear ache, acne, reduced arthritis pain, skin melanoma (cancer), warts, infection, dandruff, and much more. We use it on plants in the garden and in the house as well as on our pets." - A Satisfied Customer
